This should help understand where each image fits:

  • on macosx.

This shows a corner of the desktop with the 2 types of installer files macosx users can download (DMG and PKG) and after clicking on the DMG icon, the "xpra with disk" icon shows up and the contents window shows the main icon (people are expected to drag it to the "Applications" folder):

Large draft icons:

After trying to use the large draft icons above for the system tray, I quickly came to the realisation that the icon needs to be simplified a lot more to look half decent at system tray sizes.
We are going to target win7 and later so 32x32 may be the smallest for win32 platforms, but X11 systrays can be smaller. (and on OSX, the dock is much bigger!)

Here are some possible directions:
system tray sized version system tray sized version system tray sized version system tray sized version system tray sized version
(the larger version templates are also attached to this ticket)

Since the design of no 10 was the most popular, here are some 32x32 variations on that theme (downscaled quickly using gimp, could probably be made more legible):

I quite like
legible 32x32 icon
But maybe the lines underneath need to be bigger or sharper, because otherwise they're barely visible.

Not so much

Milestone: 1.02.0

I can't hold off the release any longer for this and it clearly isn't ready. Re-scheduling.

comment:7 Changed 15 months ago by Antoine Martin

Milestone: 2.03.0

No time for this.

New direction: we could tie this with #401 and use the lines to show the state of the connection, in the same way that wifi / cellular network bars show it.
